本文的作者Sarah Faith Hansen在年轻的时候游览过美国大陆的大部分地方,去过阿拉斯加和夏威夷,非洲,瑞士,爱尔兰,大不列颠,苏格兰,法国,墨西哥,内波尔。还在西印度群岛的格林纳达住了几年。让作者用亲身经历告诉你,7 Reasons You Should Travel While You’re Young

上期回顾:旅行使人谦逊,世界并不是围绕你转

    Just like traveling is humbling, it is also empowering. You realize you can do things you never thought possible. For example, I have lived for the past two years in Grenada, West Indies.[西印度群岛的格林纳达] I have always enjoyed driving on the right side of nicely paved[铺] and open roads of the U.S. Here, I was thrown into driving on the left side of the road on twisty mountain passes down broken roads that aren't much bigger than a one-lane driveway[单车道], yet they expect two-way traffic to freely meet around the blind corners. Add to the lovely mix the fact that there are drop-offs[陡坡] with no guard rail along most of the drive, and far below the sheer[绝对的] free fall[自由落体] you see the rooftops of homes.

    So, if I lose control, I not only kill myself, but I land on a house and kill a nice family having dinner. No pressure! Yet, after more than a few white-knuckled[失蹄] moments, I can now drive comfortably with the locals and don’t bat an eye at the drop offs, the livestock[家畜] in the road, the pot holes, or the fact that there is no way I should have made it through that tight squeeze with that oncoming car without losing a mirror. Conquering this fear helped me learn that I could adapt to more than I felt I was capable of conquering. I think that’s a good thing to learn at any age, but you can apply it longer throughout your lifetime if you start early.
